  2. Unwrap tri tip and gently pat dry. Brush with oil.

Basting Marinade:

  1. Place all basting ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk together.

  2. Preheat grill to 375 degrees F or place grill pan over medium-high heat and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Add tri tip and sear for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and continue to sear for 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Lower heat to 350 degrees F and baste roast with basting marinade. Flip and baste other side of the roast, then close grill lid.

  5. Continue to flip and baste tri tip every 8 minutes for about 24 minutes for medium-rare or for 32 minutes for medium.
